it comes to these problems. >> reporter: now later today top officials from the obama administration will be fanning out across the impacted areas in new jersey and also in new york visiting hospitals, visiting with utilities. the idea here, according to the obama administration, is for these officials to see the progress firsthand and also come back with potential solutions, help the need -- help, rather, the things that they need get to the location in a timely manner. >> dan, the president has incredible schedule over the next few days, campaigning in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, and virginia, just to name a few. why does he and his camp feel it's so important to spend as much time as they can in so many places in such a small amount of time? >> reporte >> reporter: because these are the states where the race will be decided. you listed all the important states, florida, colorado, nevada. but here in ohio, this is the biggest, the most important of the battleground states. the president was here yesterday, made three stops making two stops here. we'll return here again. and the message
creation begin and we have seen all of the jobs lost during the four years of the obama administration regained. that is what you are going to hear from president obama at 8:30 this morning when the jobs numbers come out. we are certain it will be positive, create 125,000 jobs. if it's less than 100, republicans are going pounce on that. if it's more than 150 or close to 200, obama administration is going to go on that. what you are going to hear about is the unemployment rate, 7.8%. it drops, probably going go to 7.9%. christine will explain why the job loss and creation numbers are different from unemployment. the bar chart is the more important number. the bottom line is, all you are going to hear is spend and we are going tell you what matters. it is going to be a deciding factor for many voters. >> the jobs number is a number you see. you have been on the ground in ohio. we want to know what it feels like there when it comes to jobs. what are people saying? >> reporter: yeah. so, you know ohio has been hard hit. i was in youngstown, the second biggest deal maker in the country aft
. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. the president took office, there were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs at the end of the bush administration into the obama administration. and now the fight has been, the political fight has been over the durability of the recovery and jobs since then. when you go to the right of that chart you can see we have been adding jobs now for two years but we haven't been adding necessarily enough jobs to every month keep up with the increase of people in the working-age population, and to recover all of those jobs that had been lost. so that's where we stand right now. 125,000 jobs is the forecast for today. about an hour and a half, and 7.9% is the unemployment rate. it's the last big hurdle before the election. the last big piece of economic news for both campaigns, and for people to weigh before they make the decision on who to vote for. >> it's not just economic news. it has all the political implications. especially in the final days. that chart we've seen on the political campaign on both sides of the debate. christine, than
of the jobs in america were created over the last 15 years. but unfortunately, under the obama administration, the number of new business start-ups is at a 30-year low. and that is because they put so many burdens on small businesses. a lot of entrepreneurs have said boy, i'm not going to risk my life savings to start a business right now, given how tough the environment is. i was with the founder of a big chain, papa john, i don't think you have heard of him. he said i don't think i would have started a company in the type of environment we have today. i want to make sure america is a place you want to start a business. people come here from all over the world, for opportunities, a chance to build for themselves. and their children. and i want to help them. i was with -- i was with one guy in st. louis, who had a small business. an electronics business. and he said that he and his son calculated how much money they were paying in taxes of what they earned. now, it is not a big business. four people, four employees. he said when they calculated their income tax, and then their payroll tax, an
unemployment rate. it's a positive for the democrats and the obama administration, at least short term. we know that the election is about the economy. it is about, you know, two different visions in terms of an obama plan that basically suggests raising taxes on the wealthy, you know, to lower the deficit and romney plan that suggests tax reform that ultimately will produce higher growth. you know, i'm not so sure that either one of those have been detailed specifically so that voters understand, but, nonetheless, that's what tuesday is all about. >> earlier this week, bill, you spoke to cnbc and you sounded a litt little, let's say, jaded about the election. let's listen to what you said and then we'll talk about it on the other side. >> we spent $5 billion on this election for what? to prove that it's a government of the superpac by the superpac for the superpac to prove that basically who wins at this point we'll be at four years in the future. but let's look to something different as opposed to this red and blue state theology that is basically the same. >> does the matter which candidates

fuel to the disaster zone, sending 24 million gallons of extra gas, a welcome sign. the obama administration is hiring trucks to bring the gas to staging areas. all this is unfolding four days before the general election. president obama and governor romney fighting it out for every last vote, especially in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney ea

growth rate of the economy. it's actually the number of jobs that the obama administration predicted last february. now, we're way short of that and we will remain short of it as long as this president is pursuing these policies. but governor romney isn't putting out there anything other than what happens if we restore basic health to the american economy. it's achievable. couple major things. first of all, the tax reform proposal that the governor has put on the table is absolutely essential and every independent economist that has looked at it says it will create a lot of new jobs. you bring down the rates, broaden the base, bringing down the rates and broadening the base encourages productive investment as opposed to tax driven investment. it's what reagan did. i was there when the congress did it. it can help create a tremendous amount of jobs. we're all aware in this country we have this tremendous potential in the energy sector. some of it has been materiali materialized. over the objections and resistance of the federal government. the government will do a number of things like bui
.s. conference of catholic bishops has weighed in perhaps strongly than they have in decades opposing the obama administration's health care plan when it comes to providing funding for contraception and, you know, the evangelical vote is key in iowa and ohio. if those voters get in the race and vote for mitt romney as they're telling me they will and don't sit it out as many did in 2008, that's huge. >> certainly going to be interesting to watch. poppy, thank you. >>> we have this programming note for you. cnn's anderson cooper takes a final close look at the candidates in america's choice 2012 countdown to election day. sunday night, 8:00 eastern. it is right here on cnn. >> 48 minutes after the hour right now and some signs of normalcy in new york after sandy. subways are back in service on a limited basis but laguardia airport will open again this morning. amazingly fast. i really didn't think it would get open this quickly again. we'll have the latest coming up next.

retirees think they have been thrown under the bus by the obama administration. >> he certainly didn't protect my pension. i was just road kill, and to be kicked to the curb and out of the way. >> bruce said he and thousands of salaried delphi retirees saw that pensioned slashed and lost their health and insurance benefits as part of the deal so delphi could emerge from bankruptcy in 2009. general motors needed its biggest supplier, delphi, to be healthy. what are you fighting for right now? what do you want to see? >> the full restoration of our pension. >> he's fighting here and in washington. >> simply put, our decades of effort for the company were considered to be valueless to this administration. >> the retierees have sued to gt their pensions back, but the case is moving slowly. when they heard we were coming to town, a group of retirees and their families showed up. raise your hand if you supported president obama in the last election. raise your hand if you're supporting president obama this year. >> he didn't bail us out. he left us behind. >> i lost 40% of my pension, all
the president himself, but also the overall administration, governor christie saying that the obama administration acted very quickly in not only declaring the state of emergency for the state of new jersey, but also a disaster declaration. so he had a lot of kind words for the president. they will be joined, as we pointed out, together, getting a chance to see some of the damage up close, but also the president will be talking with residents there who have been affected by the hurricane, and also talk to first responders. what you're seeing from the white house is a real aggressive effort to show that the president is staying on top of this disaster. releasing a couple of photographs of the president inside the situation room, getting briefings. overnight, i'm told by a white house official, the president got a number of briefings, and will get another briefing this morning, a briefing that's been described as, quote, substantial, and this follows a call that the president jumped on late last night, with some utilities executives where he told them that he -- his administration wou
served on the homeland security department in the obama administration. first of all, you have a column that is on right now, cnn.com. it essentially praises the president for his response to the storm. you say it's the most significant of his presidency. let's listen to a quick clip of his comments. >> i think the public needs to prepare for the fact that this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up, and we will get through this. >> so there are two things he points out. taking care of yourself and getting through this. really talking about the role of government, the heart of the role of government here, and the stark contrast between candidates. explain why you think this is so significant at this time. >> well, i think there's an important aspect to president obama's speech that gets lost in sort of the part sfwlan aspects of this, which is really about self-reliance and about the role of the government in promoting self-reliance amongst the citizenry, and so what you heard not just from obama -- this is why it's not necessarily part sxwlan
